With an abundance of new talent just waiting to be discovered, Pukkelpop has decided to add two new stages to give the stars of tomorrow (or the day after) every chance to show off their chops. Ever since its inception, one of the festival’s guiding principles has been to help launch new talent. Indeed, there’s so much new talent nowadays that the organisers have decided to introduce two new stages, viz. the Lift and the Booth. Both stages will accommodate up-and-coming artists and DJs whom the organisers think will become extremely successful in the coming years. LIFT The Lift accommodates some twenty exciting artists that are responsible for long queues at showcase festivals such as SXSW in Austin, Texas. Pop, rock, electronic music – anything goes, just as long as it sounds like tomorrow’s hype! The Lift welcomes promising acts on the verge of a breakthrough; if you want to catch them next year, they’ll likely draw a much bigger crowd on one of the bigger Pukkelpop stages. After all, even the biggest stars have to start small! DISCOVER THE LIFT LINE-UP BOOTH One night you’re hanging out in a gloomy club, the next day you’re squinting at the sun in Kiewit: the Booth is the perfect setting for a no-holds-barred open air bash. Think uniquely personal record collections with Italo disco gems, 12” Detroit techno, forgotten classics from way back when… The Booth offers a mix of everything from hiphop to excellent dance tracks and anything in between!

The Franklys will serve their garage rock topped with a pop twist, while Finnish hard rock-‘n’-rollers Santa Cruz will win you over with their thoroughly modern take on hair metal. Doom-metallers Witchsorrow are bringing their pounding grooves of defiance and attitude in a set you won’t want to miss, and we’re excited to reveal that Welsh five-piece The Dirty Youth, led by Danni Monroe, are also confirmed to make their return to Download. The new bands join an already jam-backed line up headed by Rammstein, Black Sabbath and Iron Maiden. Take a look at the full list of bands here.

More great names are packing their instruments, decks and sunglasses and heading for Benicàssim in July. Echo & The Bunnymen The legendary Echo & The Bunnymen come to FIB with a set dripping in hits like “The Killing Moon” and “The Cutter”. One of the most influential bands of the 80s when they released a string of amazing albums including debut “Crocodiles” and of course, “Ocean Rain” – a record their shy, retiring frontman Ian McCulloch described as “the greatest album ever made… when I sing “The Killing Moon” I know there isn’t a band in the world who’s got a song anywhere near that”. Band of Skulls Band Of Skulls fourth album, “By Default”, is the sound of a group on the sharpest form of their career, more engaged and focused than they’ve ever been. An album that electrifies with rock’ n’ roll cut back to its most vivid elements, expertly – sculpted three-minute bursts so unashamedly anthemic and accessible they’ll soundtrack the Festival! Dorian A huge welcome for Dorian, one of the key Spanish bands you really shouldn’t miss at FIB. A mix of new wave, electronica and indie rock, Dorian are widely and rightly considered to be one of the foremost Spanish acts at home and abroad. Find out why they’ve accumulated more than 50 million views on youtube. Breakbot Crafty ideas whipped-up in a vintage outfit with techno vibes and futuristic accelerations creating a perfectly current soundtrack. Tomorrow’s retro that they present at FIB this July. Intricate and bouncy tracks with Stevie Wonder and the Motown crowd in the background, spouts of funk and disco on a well-trodden dancefloor. Check this out… Two very different acts make their way from California to Castellón this summer. The eerie and immersive world soundtracked by The Soft Moon will pull you in with bass that reeks of chorus, unrelenting mechanized beats, wailing synthesizers and angular guitar lines that worm into your ears and never leave. Meanwhile, Tijuana Panthers will wow you with their witty, danceable fusion of surf, garage rock and punk making their Benicàssim debut. We’re also thrilled to announce that Pacosan (think lo-fi psychedelia and electronica), John Grvy (think Frank Ocean or James Blake) and DJ Maadraassoo will all be joining us for the greatest weekend of the summer!
